Samus joins Link with the Metroid Other M: Samus Aran FigmaPosted 1:22 pm on Sunday, October 21st, 2012 by Chris Del Castillo
Last week we showed you the Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword Link Figma, a fully poseable Link figure made for Zelda fans. Well Link wasn’t the first Nintendo product released as a fully poseable figure. Max Factory actually released a Samus Figma in Japan back in Late June. The figure almost quickly sold out and the only places that had them listed were Amazon and Ebay for about $129.99 a piece. It originally retailed for $55.99.
Well six months later Samus is getting an actual domestic release alongside the Link Figma. It’ll be complete with poseable joints and very amazing coloring.
The figma is based off Metroid Other M. While the game wasn’t as impressive as everyone hoped, one good thing did come out of it, and it’s this impressive and beautifully designed figure.
The figure includes the popular “Morph Ball,” two different beam effects, and different parts to pose her shooting missiles. She comes with five different hand parts for her left hand, including an open hand, a gripped close hand and the famous “thumbs-up” hand. A poseable figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
Growing up Chris watched a lot of the original Saturday morning cartoons and developed a love for arts and animation. Growing up he tried his hand at animation and eventually script writing, but even more his love of video games, anime and technology grew.
